For those attending the Trade Fairs in large groups, needing upwards of 45 rooms, we can offer whole ship charters. This is the perfect solution to host your staff and guests in one private space, which can be branded, and tailored to your needs. As well as having all your guests in one place, this gives you the inimitable benefit of your own restaurant, bar and lounge at your disposal for the duration of the Trade Fair. Why not invite your clients to a dinner cruise? Or treat your staff to a movie night? See what our current clients have to say about us for some more ideas.

We have a large range of ships we work with, and can find the right combination to suit you. Please get in touch and give us a few details about your needs and we will start to plan your personal package.


Outside of the Trade Fair times we can also arrange private charters for a range of events afloat. We work with a huge variety of ships, and are experts at finding the right vessel to satisfy your needs. Some of our clients take the opportunity to spend a weekend teambuilding whilst enjoying the beautiful scenery of the ‘Rhine Gorge’, or celebrate a company anniversary with an evening cruise from Dusseldorf to Cologne. Most of the hotelships offer multiple meeting and event spaces to use- allowing you to plan a range of activities over a short period of time. A presentation in the lounge, a sales meeting in the back bar and a putting competition on deck? Whatever the event, we can add that special something.
